Can I just ask one thing? Why are we so sure this is the same person? darkstarz does not seem the same to me as the person writing trash all the time. I don't want to "feed the trolls," but darkstarz does write knowledgeably about the Grateful Dead, and without offending anyone, no?

Ring, thank you for being intelligent.

I set up an e-mail account over a decade ago and darkstar was taken so i placed a . in-between and a z on the tail end and it was accepted. Hence the handle dark.starz which has been in use since.

I appreciate your personal reasons for discretion and internet privacy and recall a post of yours with a reference to not wanting to publish your e-mail address and respected that.

Everyone should have the right to post here and for whatever reason, if someone feels a need to disagree with an opinion, that should also be accepted.

Unfortunately, there are a few hateful people who feel a need to constantly express their hatred in repetitive broken record fashion and that is, well, unfortunate. Also, the exhausting sophmoric threads appearing recently are beyond silly and really don't deserve a response in my opinion.

I enjoy knowledge and always have an open mind for learning new stuff every day. There is this concept "free speech" and keeping the internet an "open" frontier is an important fundamental right.

So, thank you for your kind words and even though the wacko's will always have their day here it's more the assholes to steer clear of :)

You are a coward and a fraud Kochman, and you are fooling no one here. Take your medications and get yourself some help!

Hey RingLeeO--it does get confusing, and I can attest to the fact that the original Kman, prior to all Hell breaking loose, was more than capable of engaging in an exchange that would certainly pass for "acceptable/normal" hereabouts. We differed dramatically in our opinions, esp in regard to, of all things, WWI & WWII, and relative contributions of US, UK, Russkies, blah, blah, blah...though I am convinced he had/has his facts wrong, we discussed the matters without it falling completely apart.

However, things did go "wrong", for reasons we've all heard too much about, but SBud & CLIFF do seem to know at least some of his handles, and frankly, I just more or less steer clear of it...I only recognize the MO definitively when the same errors of fact surface in regard to military history--ie, that it must be Kman.

Nonetheless, a reasonable rule of thumb is to address the post rather than the poster; Kman, regardless of faults, is capable of exchanges without going off the deep end.

Unlike me--with me, you always get the same drivel, the same 68 focus, and the overabundance of nonDEAD historical trivia that really doesn't belong here, eh?

I don't think you could get away with using different handles here, you're definitely unique :)

Yes, Ring. We do know. Sean can provide you with an explanation on how he knows beyond any doubt that dark.starz is Kochman...
